Note: *According to Vernon Moore the men not pictured were assigned to the newly formed Army Tank Destroyers. Some of the men eventually returned to the 191st and others stayed with the Tank Destroyers which would later be abolished. From what I understand the weapons being developed were ineffective and not proven. The concept evolved back to tanks fighting tanks. Evidently in the development of the Tank Destroyers (as a weapon) it became increasingly as armored as a tank was thus the Army disbanded the concept and the idea came back full circle and tanks continued to fight tanks. I believe these men left the 191st sometime in 1941, a few returned, some continued until the Tank Destroyers were abolished in 1945
(These notes were taken down during a conversation with Vernon More and I don't completely trust my note taking. If there are discrepancies please email me)
